Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper will deliver the opening keynote address in Denver on Monday, September 24th, for the 6th Annual Algae Biomass Summit (ABS), the official conference of the Algae Biomass Organization (ABO) and the world’s largest algae industry gathering. The Governor will welcome the industry to Colorado and discuss the importance of developing algae-derived fossil fuel replacements and other products for the economy, as well as energy independence.

“Colorado is home to some of the leading algae research and commercialization efforts and Governor Hickenlooper has been a strong advocate of clean energy and the benefits it can bring in terms of jobs, energy security and environmental sustainability,” said Mary Rosenthal, Executive Director of ABO. “The Governor’s decision to address the Summit is a reflection of how important the expanding algae industry is to finding new sources of renewable fuels, chemicals, feed and food without adverse impacts on water usage or valuable agricultural land.”

The 6th Algae Biomass Summit will be held at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel September 24-27. With an expected 90 live and 120 poster presentations, an expanded exhibition hall and record pre-registrations the 2012 Summit is on track to be the largest since the annual event began.
